Relax! The Pakistani actress isn’t off to the (momentarily) forbidden territory. She completed the shoot for this film back in 2012, even before Raja Natwarlal. Sher, directed by Soham Shah (the man behind Luck and Kaal),was supposed to be her debut film. Yes, let that sink in. Now, why did we never heard about it and why did the producer, Ashtivinayak (of Rockstar fame), take so long to bring it to the forefront? Read ahead!
After watching Humaima Malick in Shoaib Mansoor’s Bol, we sat back and expected her to deliver one smashing performance after another. But that didn’t happen. Out came her debut Bollywood film opposite Emran Hashmi, and we couldn’t fathom why she did what she did. Then there was the extended ad film (the makers decided to call it a feature film) Dekh Magar Pyar Se and we slowly stood up and walked away, taking our expectations from Humaima Malick with us.
The talented actress went AOL, but BTS photos of her upcoming Pakistani film, Arth, keep popping up on social media. The recent news about her second bollywood venture – a remake of Mother India – has us excited.
Before the whole India-Pakistan clash, Humaima Malick had signed up for a period film in India opposite the likes of Sanjay Dutt, Vivek Oberoi, and Vinod Khanna. The shoot came to a halt because of Dutt’s untimely arrest, but now the film, titled Sher, is back on track and is expected to release in 2018.
Sher was earlier titled Sarman Munjha, and according to a press release, “Humaima will be seen in traditional Rajasthani attire and role.”
That sounds mighty interesting.
